About the Book
We are from the NZ Washbourne family that emigrated here on the first four ships on the 'Godley' migration in 1850 from England to colonise Canterbury, NZ. This book is only part of our fabulous family history.
Jillian lives in Whangarei, New Zealand with her husband Peter. Their shared passion is the love of classic Ford cars. They own several classics including a Mk2 Escort Rally car, an historic MkI Escort Rally car that Peter has finished restoring which has a considerable past history. I have taken up another passion of writing personal children's story books drawn from my own personal real life experiences which I have enjoyed immensely. My other love is genealogy on my Washbourne side, my mother's family, has a considerable historic, noble & royal side which is just so fascinating.
